If you wanted to learn how to program microcontrollers then you've found the right book. Microchip PIC microcontrollers are being designed into electronics throughout the world and none is more popular than the 8-pin version. Now the home hobbyist can create projects with these little microcontrollers using a low cost development tool called the CHIPAXE system and the BASIC software language. Chuck Hellebuyck introduces how to use this development setup to build useful projects with an 8-pin PIC12F683 microcontroller. All the projects include a detailed schematic and directions of how to build the hardware on a breadboard
Rafiquzzaman's Microcontroller Theory and Applications with the PIC 18F has been designed for a one-semester or one-quarter course in microcontrollers taught at the undergraduate level in electrical/computer engineering and computer science departments. The students are expected to have a background in C language and digital logic (both combinational and sequential) design. Practitioners of microcontroller-based applications will find more simplified explanations, together with examples and comparisons considerations, than are found in manufacturers' manuals.

Programming and Customizing the PICAXE Microcontroller, Second Edition, has been fully updated for the latest hardware and software upgrades, and shows you, step by step, how to take full advantage of all the capabilities of the PICAXE and build your own control projects. This practical guide is packed with helpful illustrations, detailed examples, and do-it-yourself experiments. Perfect for beginners and students, the book also contains advanced information for more experienced programmers
Microprocessors are the key component of the infrastructure of our 21st-century electronic- and digital information-based society. More than four billion are sold each year for use in 'intelligent' electronic devices; ranging from smart egg-timer through to aircraft management systems. Most of these processor devices appear in the form of highly-integrated microcontrollers, which comprize a core microprocessor together with memory and analog/digital peripheral ports. By using simple cores, these single-chip computers are the cost- and size-effective means of adding the brains to previous dumb widgets; such as the credit card. Using the same winning format as the successful Springer guide, The Quintessential PIC® Microcontroller, this down-to-earth new textbook/guide has been completely rewritten based on the more powerful PIC18 enhanced-range Microchip MCU family. Throughout the book, commercial hardware and software products are used to illustrate the material, as readers are provided real-world in-depth guidance on the design, construction and programming of small, embedded microcontroller-based systems
Here's everything the robotics hobbyist needs to harness the power of the PICMicro MCU! In this heavily-illustrated resource, author John Iovine provides plans and complete parts lists for 11 easy-to-build robots each with a PICMicro "brain.” The expertly written coverage of the PIC Basic Computer makes programming a snap -- and lots of fun.
"Microcontrollers: From Assembly Language to C Using the PIC24 Family" provides an introduction to microprocessors and microcontrollers for either the student or hobbyist. It begins by discussing simple microprocessor architecture concepts, moves to assembly language programming in a C language context, then covers fundamental hardware interfacing topics such as parallel IO, asynchronous serial IO, synchronous serial I/O (I2C and SPI), interrupt-driven IO, timers, analog-to-digital conversion, and digital-toanalog conversion. Programming topics are discussed using both assembly language and C, while hardware interfacing examples use C to keep code complexity low and improve clarity. This book's C examples on hardware interfacing strive for code clarity first and optimization second, providing a gentle learning curve and ensuring understanding of the key concepts. The book's numerous examples include complete schematics and working code to operate a number of useful peripherals, including temperature sensors, LCD displays, a robot, and a reflow oven, providing a good starting point for your designs. Numerous lab experiments are included in the appendices, while the companion CD-ROM includes complete source code for all book examples, which can be compiled using the freely available Microchip C compiler and development environment. Visit www.reesemicro.com to obtain supplementary information on the text, the latest version of the library and example code with accompanying documentation, and links to courses which use this text. In addition, an online discussion group promotes interaction with the authors and a forum to discuss PIC24-based projects.
Interfacing PIC Microcontrollers provides a thorough introduction to interfacing techniques for students, engineers and hobbyists looking to take their knowledge of PIC application development to the next level. Step-by-step examples are used to illustrate a comprehensive set of interfaces, and these can be run interactively on Proteus circuit simulation software, used widely in educational institutions, to aid understanding without the need to build real hardware. Each chapter ends with suggestions for further applications, and numerous line drawings illustrate the application hardware. A companion website includes all examples in the text which can be downloaded together with a free version of Proteus's ISIS Lite. Every topic is illustrated by designs based on the 16F877, so the reader can concentrate on interfacing, and not have to deal with different microcontrollers. All the circuits are available on the associated website www.picmicros.org.uk Harness the power of the PIC microcontroller unit with practical, common-sense instruction from an engineering expert. Through eight real-world projects, clear illustrations, and detailed schematics, Making PIC Microcontroller Instruments and Controllers shows you, step-by-step, how to design and build versatile PIC-based devices. Configure all necessary hardware and software, read input voltages, work with control pulses, interface with peripherals, and debug your results This book is developed around Microchip's latest family of parts, the PIC18FXXX family. It focuses on the PIC18F452, a new part brought to market in May 2002. It is intended that the reader will find a smooth path to the creative process of writing enhanced application code. This book attempts to organize and unify the development of these three capabilities: to understand and use components, to exploit powerful algorithmic processes, and to break down the complexity of an instrument or device so as to meet its specifications. The book is dedicated toward the development of creative design capability. Throughout this book, the approach taken is to introduce a template of assembly language code that encompasses a set of features of the PIC18F452 plus its interactions with some of the I/O devices resident on a small 4"x4" development board. For electrical engineers who work with the PIC18FXXX family.
